    Just a reminder that the free Windows 10 Upgrade for assistive technologies ends today.
    A day later, on the 17th, the page (finally) says that the free offer has closed (although they seem to have forgotten about their last-minute extension to 16th Jan. ). MS have now removed the update assistant download button.


    Microsoft said:
    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10. The free upgrade offer extension for Windows 7 and Windows 8 customers who use assistive technologies expired on December 31, 2017.

    Good thing I got my last Win7 Upgraded on Thursday the 11th. I did create HP's Factory Restore discs first in case I need to go back.

    The question remains whether or not the 'unofficial' free licence awarded to a normal upgrade will now be turned off.

    It was always a puzzle as to why it continued to work long after the 'official' end of the upgrade offer back in 2016. I suspect that it was too difficult to turn off for ordinary upgrades while it was still needed for the Assistive technology offer. Now that has ended perhaps it can finally be turned off safely?

    We'll have to wait and see. I have an un-upgraded machine. I'll use it to test that in a few weeks time.

    What I considered important was to get the Digital Licensing for the computer while I could save money. The machine is actually a rehab and available for someone needing an inexpensive one [low income types], last one I sold for $100 complete system.
